GOOD READING

Today seems to be the day for good Sabbath related articles to read online. We have three of them. First off, let’s lead with a great news article about Bill Ward done by the St. Petersburg Times website entitled "Bill Ward: Ozzy he’s not". It talks about Bill’s internet release of Straws, his views on […]

BACK WHERE I BELONG AVAILABLE AGAIN

It appears that Tony Martin’s long out of print 1992 solo album "Back Where I Belong" is now available again. I was informed of this today, and checked it out – it appears that it’s been reissued under a new label (Phantom – the old one was Polydor). You can order it with this link. […]

BILL WARD’S RADIO SHOW

I just got word that Bill Ward has agreed to a date for a new edition of his semi-regular radio show on radio station WPMD from Cerritos College in Cerritos, CA. The date he’ll be doing it is February 15th. Once I get more info, like the time of the show, I’ll report back. UPDATE: […]

RONNIE JAMES DIO BOX SET?

I was sent this quick news blurb in the last couple of days – I’m attempting to verify whether it’s true or not. If it is true, it certainly could be very interesting… Rhino Records is planning on releasing a box set spanning Ronnie James Dio’s entire career from ELF, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, and his […]

THE MAILING LIST

No, I haven’t discontinued the mailing list. I’ve just been real busy putting together my work after the holidays and am just now catching up. I should have a new issue out in the next couple of days.

GEEZER BUTLER UPDATE.. SORT OF

One of the questions I get asked a lot is what Geezer Butler is up to. A few weeks ago I had written to Gloria Butler (Geezer’s wife and manager), and asked what was going on. Today I got a response back saying she was sorry she hadn’t gotten back sooner, but that she expects […]

ANOTHER OZZY GREATEST HITS ALBUM

I just got word of a new Ozzy Greatest Hits album to be released this year called "Ozzy Essential" (could be "Ozzy’s Essentials" – I’m unclear as to the exact wording). Anyway, it’s a double CD and covers all of his albums (except Ultimate Sin, which he has deleted, and seems to want to pretend […]

BOBBY RONDINELLI INTERVIEW

Well, this interview isn’t new, but it’s an interview I was just informed of by the site’s author with Bobby Rondinelli, it was published on March of 2002, but I hadn’t seen it before, so I’m betting some other folks haven’t either. Check it out here. In it, Bobby talks about the new Rondinelli disc, […]

IOMMI/ANSELMO ALBUM CANCELLED?

Had several folks send me this text over my layoff about the Iommi/Anselmo album being cancelled.. Unconfirmed reports have surfaced that the proposed pairing between BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi and PANTERA/DOWN frontman Phil Anselmo on Iommi’s next solo CD has either been indefinitely postponed or cancelled. No further information is available at this time. […]

SABBATH STORY GIVEAWAY

I picked the winners of the Sabbath Story DVD contest during the holidays, but haven’t yet sent out the winners. The answers to the trivia questions were: Which Star Trek actress is in a Black Sabbath music video? (Answer: Denise Crosby played Tasha Yar in Star Trek: The Next Generation, and was in the music […]
